    Leah - Лея

    Swen - Свен
    Gerhard - Герхард / Гергагд
    Wolfgang - Волфганг
    Nadine - Нэйдин
    Katrin - Кэтрин
    Dolly - Долли
    Charlotte - Шарлот(т)
    Molly - Молли
    Elizabeth - Элизабет
    Laura - Лора

    Much depends on how you pronounce them.

    Re: English/German names to Russian

    Just my 5 cents on several names (they can be used as well as those TATY pointed out)

    Leah - Лия
    Gerhard - Гергагд (never heard of this variant)
    Wolfgang - Вольфганг
    Nadine - Надин (second syllable stressed)
    Katrin - Катрин (second syllable stressed)
    Charlotte - Шарлотта
    Laura - Лаура ("у" is stressed)

    Emily - Эмили (English person), Эмилия (Russian person)
    Elizabeth - Элизабет (English person), Елизавета (Russian person).The English queen's name would be Елизавета, not Элизабет

    I have no time at the moment to go through names but there could be variants.
    Anatoli - Анатолий - أناتولي - 阿纳托利 - アナトーリー - 아나톨리

    Charlotte in English is pronounced Sharlot. There no sound after the T.

    In English Laura is pronounced Lor-a
    Your translit sounds like La-oo-ra which sounds sillt.
    Гергард is based on English/German H = Russian G
    I agree with the soft sign in Wolfgang.

    As I said, I'm not against your variants. I've just added some that sound more Russian-like. Like Анатолий said, Elisabeth can be called Елизавета, the same way as Charlotte can be Шарлотта (as well as Шарлотт, surely).
